A North Carolina pastor and his wife who lost two sons in a tragic accident on the way home from a family wedding in 2015 are now sharing happy news.

The couple announced that they are expecting twins.

“Y’all have held us up in prayer and we are so grateful! Now we ask you to add two more Eddings to your prayers! We are expecting twins this summer!” Hadley Eddings wrote in a Facebook post Sunday.

In a statement to People, Hadley said, “The Lord has not left us for one second in our grief of losing our two boys almost two years ago. God is a redeemer and a restorer! God blesses us beyond what we deserve or could ever imagine.

Hadley and Gentry Eddings were in a caravan with family members on their way home from Wilmington to Charlotte during Memorial Day weekend in 2015 when a truck driver slammed into them, killing their 2-year old son Dobbs and sending Hadley, who was 37 weeks pregnant, into labor.

Hadley, a teacher at a church, ended up having an emergency C-section, but the baby boy — whom they named Reed — died just two days later.

They made headlines when they publicly forgave the driver who caused the wreck.
